From staff reports
The hustle and bustle of a busy move-in weekend is fast approaching for first-year and returning Ohio University students. Go Green Week events kick off Thursday, Aug. 22, and continue through Sunday, Aug. 25. While several fun and exciting activities are planned for students on OHIO's Athens Campus, the hard work of moving in to the residence halls still remains.
Here are some key information points to help make the move-in experience as smooth as possible.
Where am I going?
The roads that were closed over the summer months (and during Bobcat Student Orientation) due to construction projects across campus are expected to reopen in time for the move-in rush, with the exception of the north side lane of Park Place outside Alden Library. Officers with the Ohio University Police Department and staff members from Transportation and Parking Services will be on hand to help direct traffic to residence halls and answer questions about where you can unload your belongings. Signage will be posted around campus to guide you to the appropriate residential green.
Cars will be allowed to park adjacent to residence halls for 30 minutes to unload. Once you've unloaded your belongings, an OHIO staff member will help direct you to available parking lots.
Residence hall move-in will be staggered alphabetically to allow ample time and space for unpacking and settling in. Please refer to the Arrival Guide for more information about when your specific time is scheduled.
Can I get a hand?
No doubt you might need some help during the move-in process. OHIO Go Green guides will be available to answer any questions and offer directions to campus buildings and parking lots. Student volunteers, including several coaches and athletes from the OHIO Bobcats sports teams, will be on hand to assist with move-in. These helpers will be available on Thursday, Aug. 22, and Friday, Aug. 23, only.
Additional support services include:
All that heavy lifting might work up an appetite. If hunger strikes, you can find food within reach at many of Ohio University Culinary Services' conveniently-located facilities:
Culinary Services will be offering a special $7.50 (plus tax) cash price within all Dining Court locations for parents and guests throughout move-in weekend. For more details, including a complete listing of venue hours for both move-in weekend and fall semester, visit the Culinary Services website.
Got questions? OHIO is here for you!
Whether you're new to campus or returning for another exciting year, you might have additional questions that can only be answered by a specific department. Several units will have extended hours to accommodate after-hours requests or concerns. These include:
